Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Ipswich's most original restaurant, II Punto, is an antique Dutch customs gunboat, moored along Neptune Quay. You can relax in its wonderful atmosphere and its polished brass ambience. From a quick snack for lunch on the upper deck to a romantic dinner on the lower deck, it is the perfect place for an evening on the sea front.

Went here on an evening, staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was nice to look at and unusual on a boat. Food was nice, and served promptly, we all enjoyed ourselves but all agreed that at over £50 a head from the a la carte menu, it was very expensive for what we got. Don't get me wrong... More

Excellent food , excellent service , very reasonable prices, will definitely be returning. The chef is very French influenced, and the menu reflects this. We will definitely be returning with friends to this gem of a restaurant.

A lovely relaxing evening where we were served by very attentive and friendly staff with excellent food. Nothing was too much trouble. Our two teenage grandchildren cleared their plates which must say something. They thoroughly enjoyed the meal out in a formal but not "stuffy" environment. The evening reminded me of why I should visit more often and I will... More

I visited with my husband and two friends after reading the many positive reviews. We were most definitely not disappointed. The food, the atmosphere, the attentive and professional staff all combined to create a wonderfully enjoyable evening. If I had to write my review in three words, they would be DO NOT HESITATE!
